When you decide to learn Chinese in China, you may be curious what’s included in tuition. At Keats School in Kunming, China, the tuition doesn’t just include classes, it includes a lot more to be excited about.

In this blog post, we’ll break down everything you get when you sign up for our intensive one-on-one classes.

STUDY CHINESE IN CHINA: THE COST AT KEATS

Our most popular course option at Keats School is our intensive one-on-one. Not only is it the most popular, it’s also the best way to learn Mandarin and the easiest way to learn the Chinese language. Keats has been offering this study abroad program in China since we were founded in 2004.

The tuition for the one-on-one class depends on the program duration you choose and how many hours of studying you’d like to do.

Classes run from 1 week long to 52 weeks and you can choose to study Mandarin in China for 4 or 6 hours a day.

The majority of our students who apply for the intensive one-on-one class learn Mandarin in China for 4 to 12 weeks and study for 4 hours a day.

WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH TUITION

In addition to the learn Mandarin in China course with a private instructor, you receive a lot more when studying at Keats Chinese.

But, you can also pick different classes to attend:

FREE SERVICES WHEN YOU LEARN MANDARIN IN CHINA

When you study Mandarin in China at a university, you only get the classes. But at Keats School we want your money to go further, that’s why we offer a number of free services for our students.

Our free services include:

  • Airport pick-up and drop-off
  • Unlimited gym membership at Keats Fitness Center
  • Laundry
  • Internet access use without limit or you can use the computers at school for free
  • A tour of the surrounding area (bank, supermarket, post office etc.)
  • Travel planning in China
  • Medicine for minor illnesses

Keats believes that you should experience more than a classroom where you’re learning Mandarin while you study in China. Keats School is your second home and we want you to feel that.

By offering private bedrooms, free laundry and the ability to connect to the internet allows you to feel comfortable while away from friends and family.

EXERCISE AND HEALTH

We know that a healthy exercise and food are important while studying Chinese in China.

When you sign up for our intensive one-on-one class, you will gain access to our state-of-the-art fitness centre. This centre is available any hour of the day to get your sweat on.

Studies show that the use of exercise increases the function of the memory sections of the brain. Regular exercise changes the brain to improve memory and thinking skills. This is a huge reason to check out the Keats Fitness Centre while learning Chinese.

In addition to exercise, eating healthy foods are just as important. Like we mentioned above, we offer three meals a day for Keats Students from Monday to Friday. Keats Cafeteria uses healthy vegetables that are directly bought from farmers. We never use frozen meat, instead, all meat is fresh.

The huge difference between Keats’ cafeteria and other restaurants is all the ingredients we use to cook are good for your health.

For breakfast, we provide fresh vegetables, fruits, fried eggs, cakes, fried rice, meat, yogurt, milk, coffee, cereal, and Yunnan rice noodles.

For lunch, we provide about 10 delicious Chinese dishes with dumplings and rice.

For dinner, we provide about 10 delicious Chinese dishes with fruits and rice.

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

I am a graduate student working on my doctor degree at Columbia University. We were able to really focus on speaking especially interview  style speaking and we are able to really up my reading and writing, so when I go back to Columbia, I can take formal classes.  It has been a really good experience and I really love my teacher.

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

I have been to Keats School for 4 times now. The reasons for coming back to this school is pretty much that the teachers I did work with were very good teachers. I make it a 5-year plan or even 10-year plan to come back to this school.  All the teachers have methods of looking at what your skills are. They are aware of at what level you are. I think it is worth for everyone.

Small Group Chinese Class

Since last semester, we started studying Chinese at Keats. It was the best choice we can ever make. It is a really good school. The classes are a lot of fun, you learn a lot, but very interactive, so you talk a lot which means it is not just books and writing. Kunming is a really pleasant city to live, especially if you compare it to other cities in the east. If you like to travel, if you like to study Chinese in a fun way, Keats is the place for you.
